Titi Lucretii Cari. De Rerum Natura. Libri Sex. Accedunt Selecta Lectiones dilucidande Peomati apposita.
"Lutetiae Parisiorum, Typis Josephi Barbou, 1754" "12mo., on laid paper, text in Latin, with an engraved frontispiece, 6 engraved plates and engraved headpieces to each of the six books, contemporary signature on front free endpaper; contemporary calf, gilt edges, marbled endpapers, boards moderately frayed at edges and extremities, else a good, sound copy. The engraved frontispiece and plates are reduced but very skilful copies by Cl. Duflos of Van Mieris' plates in Havercamp's quarto edition of 1725. The type is entirely reset. There are occasional verbal variations, for example, 'Relligionem' for 'Religionem' on p.85; the headline 'Liber Quartus' [for 'Liber Quintus'] on p.211 is a misprint. Nice copy of an attractively illustrated edition. Gordon, 504B."
